Angry Corner beds be damned!!!

I will never, ever, Ever, EVER allow myself to be talked into purchasing a motorhome, TT or whatever with another corner (coffin) bed! NEVER!!!! I just finished cleaning up the motorhome after a short trip, changed the sheets, and I swear that I would like to have a word with whoever designs these things, surely a man. A man who has never made a bed in his life! The same idiot who designs tiny kitchens and homes with no storage space. Now, believe me, I have considered the option of using sleeping bags. #1 - too hot. #2 - a pain to wash. #3 - uncomfortable. #4 - I like sheets like a regular bed! If sleeping bags were supposed to be used, WHY is the mattress on the bed not just upholstered?? AND, this stupid bed has a chopped off corner. I modified our fitted sheets and the comforter, but that really didn't help when it comes to actually making up the bed. I have to crawl across to get the far left corner....well don't make me describe this ordeal. I'm in pretty good shape and fairly agile, so men, don't think I don't know what you are thinking! Have Gary do it, you say? We have an agreement that he takes care of the outside stuff, maintenance, etc. I'm out of luck there.

Now try making the bunk beds that are narrow, and encased behind a wall. Did I mention no ladder for the upper bunk? Then there is the sofa bed in our new unit. I have to crawl up, get the sheets tucked in around the corners while sitting on the sofa in the slide. Then finish making it.

Here are the bunks in my old tt.

On our coffin style bunk beds we actually take the mattress out and make the bed and slide the mattress back in the bunk.

As far as the adult bed, that is why we got a walk around bed. We were almost talked into one of those rear slide travel trailer with a king bed but we said to ourselves how in the heck do you make one of those beds.

I have those and yes, and like the OP said, the designer has never set foot on this planet. LOL

That is exactly what we do too! I even put the little elastic suspenders on the bottom sheet to hold it better.

Where were you guys when I was fighting that issue? Oh wait, I had a crossroads product so I wasn't here...

Any fixes for the trifold sofa that the feet sit higher than the head? I always put the pillows at the feet so you aren't sleeping down hill.

I'm with you. We just traded in our motorhome with the rear corner bed for a TT with a walkaround full size queen bed. We couldn't be happier.

Hate having to climb over someone just to get to the bathroom. Nothing but walk-around beds for us.

Thank you for putting that in writing. We are all thinking it. The air circulation also sucks on ours.

Your not alone in your feelings. My wife has already made it abundantly clear the next trailer will have a walk-around bed.
